New Somage Website

So much news!

Busy working over the Summer break we were able to launch a new website for my company Somage Fine Foods. The new website provides information on our company, products, associated cafes etc etc. We're soon to add a specialised blog for the website, as well as posting signature beverages and recipes from our customers.

Although we missed the Christmas rush, our hard work over the festive season also finally saw the launch each of our product lines in retail sized packaging. This means our awesome products (if I dont mind saying :o) - Chamellia Organic Tea & Kali Premium Drinking Chocolate - will soon be available in a gourmet retail store near you!


Some spirited reading

Over the Sunmmer break I didnt really have a break, but I did manage to read a couple of books. I highly recommend "The Seven spiritual Laws of Success" by Deepak Chopra, it provides some practical ways to put yourself in a good head space (the guy simply has a temendous insight into the workings of the mind (..for those staunch sceptics, even Oprah Winfrey had him on her show.. :o).

The other book I finished was "Autobiography of a Yogi" By Paramhansa Yogananda. He is truely a guru, I have to admit a considerable amount of the book was beyond my comprehension, but the parts I did pick up were a true revelation. Yet to hear of many teachers of Kriya Yoga in Australia, would appreciate being informed if someone is aware of it's practice in Melbourne.

Hi All,

Happy new year.
